Driving Forces

Since middle school, I’ve badgered loved ones, friends, and complete strangers with those little jewels discovered from the natural world that are occasionally so stunning in their implications that they are truly transformational.

Those moments of insight are invaluable.  They raise our consciences to new places, perspectives from which the immutable complexity of the universe is slightly less daunting.  Oftentimes one such moment is enough to root the lifelong pursuit of scientific discovery in even the least receptive.

It’s those instances of clarity and wonder that I hope to share on this blog.  With any luck, hiding in the awesomeness of the universe, a little insight into the human condition awaits discovery.

“We are a way for the universe to understand itself.”

-Carl Sagan
